Holly Rushmeier received the BS, MS, and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering from Cornell University. She is a professor of computer science at Yale University. Since receiving the PhD, she has held positions at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. Her research interests include realistic rendering, data visualization, 3D scanning, and applications of computer graphics in cultural heritage.
Jarke J. van Wijk received the MSc degree in industrial design engineering in 1982 and the PhD degree in computer science in 1986, both with honors. He worked from 1988 to 1998 at The Netherlands Energy Research Foundation ECN in The Netherlands, where he was engaged in research on flow visualization and computational steering. In 1998, he joined the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven and, in 2001, he was appointed a full professor in visualization. His main research interests are information visualization and flow visualization, both with a focus on the development of new visual representations. He has (co)authored more than 70 papers on visualization and computer graphics, including 13 IEEE Vis and six IEEE InfoVis papers. He is a member of the IEEE.
Greg Turk received the PhD degree in computer science in 1992 from the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill. He was a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University for two years followed by two years as a research scientist at UNC Chapel Hill. He is currently an associate professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he is a member of the College of Computing and the Graphics, Visualization, and Usability Center. His research interests include computer graphics, scientific visualization, and computer vision. He is a member of the IEEE.
